What’s The Future Of Cloud

When cloud computing was first colloquially coined as a phrase in 1996, the world would never have thought that it would become the the silver lining to all things connected over the internet. From as basic to storing your photos online, to as intricate as entire servers stored online. As technology advances, what other giant shadows is cloud going to cast over? Anesh Seedoyal speaks about this.


Cloud computing emerged into a full scale phenomenon in the early 2000s. However, due to the lack of awareness about the potential of technology, many company’s hesitated to adopt it for their products and processes. Anesh Seedoyal, Microsoft Business Unit Lead, believes that the recent, and precedented rapid adoption of cloud is mainly due to the understanding ease of use, and scalability of technology.

As organizations widen their understanding of the immense benefits of cloud computing, they are now more willing to conduct workload tests on cloud and even migrate entire applications to the cloud. The enthusiasm that companies have towards cloud migration is evident in the massive amounts of money and resources they dedicate to improve their operations.

“Cloud computing and IoT are allowing for enhanced security features and reliability” says Seedoyal, outlining that future of cloud is bright.

Cloud is already well on the fringes of changing the way we work, it facilitates businesses  achieving their goals, with performance at the core, without any fuss. Through the manner in which cloud is evolving, a five-pronged cloud computing phenomenon that leverages flexibility, agility, security, mobility, and scalability combines with existing processes, allowing the level of business’ performance to rise to a new level.

“The ability to automate and manage processes intelligently is what is leading to the right customer experiences” explains Seedoyal, implying how ubiquitous adoption of cloud infrastructure offers affordable and convenient business communication frameworks that may have been unavailable to some businesses in the past.

Through the power of cloud computing, user-friendly video conferencing with remote employees, access to built-in call screening, and other useful features become obtainable advantages for any business

Clearly, the future of cloud computing is set to offer impressive benefits to businesses around the world. Along these same lines, cloud-based software is sure to positively impact individual employees and entire workforces as well.

Having continued to create an environment for making new connections, the CIO Cloud and Security summit pulled together virtual strings and created a nexus of visionary speakers who shared their insights on the adoption and migration to cloud, whilst patching up any security loopholes.

From new applications being consistently added to networks to employees taking access control shortcuts and credentials being compromised, it is clear that there are endless vulnerabilities to detect and manage. These vulnerabilities were outlined, given solutions to, and tested at the event to ensure that adoption to the cloud is not just some buzzword.
